Joint Statement – Boosting the employment of people with chronic diseases in Europe

Via the EU Health Policy Platform led by the European Commission, the European Chronic Diseases Alliance has been leading a thematic network on the topic of the employment of people with chronic diseases. 16 organisations from the health, social and employment sectors partnered in the work, which led to the development of a framing paper and a call to action to ensure the sustainable employability of people with chronic conditions in the EU.

The call to action is launched and presented to the European Commission and interested stakeholders today 27th of November during the meeting of the EU Health Policy Platform in Brussels; and is endorsed by over 24 organisations to date. (nb: endorsed by over 45 organisations as of January 2019).
